Recent headlines confirm it.  Cyber and privacy risks are not limited to data breaches and theft of confidential information.

Technology advancements like biometrics and blockchain, the proliferation of ransomware and fraudulent funds transfer phishing scams, and increasing regulatory requirements concerning ever-expanding categories of data create cyber and privacy exposures that go well beyond a data breach scenario. The impact of these risks can adversely affect a company’s business operations, its bottom line, its stock price, and even its credit rating. 

In this session, our panel will discuss some of today’s most important technology, cyber crime, and regulatory risks, explain the role of insurance in mitigating these exposures, and provide practical advice on ways to maximize insurance coverage under a variety of policy forms.

What you will learn: 

+ The cyber and privacy risks associated with new technologies.

+ The financial impact of cybercrimes like ransomware and business email compromise.

+ The scope of exposures under new privacy regulations like GDPR and CCPA.

+ Transfer of risk to various insurance policies, including Cyber, Directors & Officers, and Property policies.

+ Negotiating more favorable policy terms to mitigate the impact of various policy conditions and exclusions, including the War Exclusion.
